The 72nd Annual Venice Film Festival kicked off this week leading to a battle of the gowns on the red carpet. The queen of film festival chic, Diane Kruger won us over in a Prada gown which oozed elegance and sophistication. The regal embroidered cape made the dress a true showstopper and managed to land Ms.Kruger at the top of our list. Always one to impress, Elizabeth Banks also delivered a beautiful white gown at the festival. The actress wore a white Dolce & Gabbana number with a bejeweled back. You can't fault a gown that looks just as stunning when it leaves a room as when it enters. Paz Vega also caught our eye in Venice in a beautiful beaded Ralph & Russo gown. Very few times does a runway dress translate as well at an event, but Paz owned this look from head to toe. There were also a couple of great looks outside of Venice this week. Jenna-Dewan Tatum looked red hot in a Parker mini dress, which she jazzed up with fabulous Jimmy Choo accessories at The A-List party in L.A.  Model turned actress Emily Ratajkowski continued her run as the new it-girl to watch, showing off her killer figure in a Tanya Taylor top paired with a Primark skirt at the launch of the brand's U.S. collection.
